I'm late to the party this week! I've been off my game because we've been out of school, which lucky for me is the topic for this week of synchoblogging.
Since I started at the age of four (almost five), there hasn't been a year of my life where I wasn't in school. I went from grade school to high school to college to teaching, almost 26 years all together. I loved being in school because I have always been a teacher's pet kind of kid. (People pleasers unite!) I got away with things because of it. I will admit here and now that I did call that girl a b*tch in the sixth grade, but when the teacher said I would never say something like that I just smiled. I mean, as a senior, my favorite teacher gave me the keys to her car and let me run errands for her during school. Teacher's Pet was my senior superlative, people!
When it came to college, I had no clue what I wanted to be, but I knew I didn't want to be a teacher. (Isn't it funny how life works.) I'd had a change of tune by sophomore year and knew teaching was what I was meant for. I love teaching, especially middle schoolers, and can't imagine my life any other way. (Well, okay, I can imagine myself as Princess Kate, but that's a post for another time.)
Can't wait to see what everyone else has to say!
